Distressed Numbers in green, brown and yellow

This is the sketch I used - a bit more than the simple one:
I used navy and neutrals, distressed edges, and a bit of distressed look to the coloring:
I used the highway numbers - Thinking of You across the miles is my idea -
The image is from SU Sweet of You.  I recently rediscovered this set, and it is becoming a favorite - I have a long list of those I like best!  The sentiment is another favorite, from the 7Gypsies library stamp - lots of tiny sentiments to tuck in a small space.  I colored with pastel chalk pencils and metallic gel pens.  The corners are a punch, and I used the punch negative for the corner of the image.  Edges are distressed, and I added a bit of ribbon.  DP is from a Debbie Mumm stack.

I used this sketch:
Green, yellow and brown are the colors for::

Fluffles is definitely a favorite (Stampendous).  Some of the cs and dp is Recollections, the rest from my stash.  I used shiny gel pens to color, and some flower brads I have had a while
